Hello, faithful readers! According to the stats chart for the past week, you people keep coming even if I’m not writing anything, and that’s both inspiring and fascinating. In fact, one of my busiest days on this blog - ever - apparently came in the middle of last week, while I was on the road!
I haven’t been writing because I was on vacation, so if you were in or around Greensboro NC or Greenville SC, you may have seen me! However, you probably wouldn’t have known me from Adam. Such is life.
Anyway, here’s a smattering of things I felt were worth mentioning, and I’ll try to post something slightly more substantial soon.
Two more down: Eye for an Eye and Skeleton Jack are closing their blogs. So long, gentlemen. E4AE always made ret paladinning sound fun, and SJ - well, what can I say? You made me like Unholy-spec DPS, despite all my best efforts to the contrary. Adios to both of you.
Your stupid food trick of the day: you can eat a Magic Eater, be transformed, and still ride Argent Tournament jousting mounts (you’ll hover somewhere above it, except the basilisk, who rides on its back). If you’re in whelp form, you’ll also have a tiny whelp-sized lance
in your pawattached to your wing.
Thanks for saving me a month or two: The Argent Hippogryph is being lowered in price from 250 to 150 seals as of, well, today (even if it displays wrong - reportedly it may cost 150 but still display 250). I am pleased, as thus far I haven’t spent a single seal because I’m aiming to get the â€˜gryph. It’ll actually be my 25th mount.
Personal accomplishments: Freya down, Hodir down more smoothly than last week, Thorim…well, still working on that one. We essentially have The Siege and The Antechamber on farm, so I’m hoping I can see a Worldcarver soon. Or a Rune Edge. Either would be a nice upgrade. Unfortunately, the theme for Ulduar this week was “holy caster drops, Batman!” We did see two of the Rogue/Death Knight/Mage/Druid tier pants tokens this week, and I snagged mine, so hello best-in-slot-for-now pants.
And to finish this off, here’s a couple screenshots of the Magic Eater/Argent mount combo. Click to embiggen:
